The Trust, and kept me engaged through more than three hundred pages of tense action. Vonnegut’s own experience working at Morgan Stanley helped him bring Wall Street behavior to life in this novel. Protagonist Grove O’Rourke is reprised from the earlier novel, Top Producer, and spends much of this novel in Charleston, helping the family of a deceased client and getting himself in deep trouble. Ample villains are matched by O’Rourke along with another lively character, southern lawyer Biscuit Hughes, who proves himself to be a reliable partner. Readers who like the world of finance and fast-paced fiction are those most likely to enjoy this novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Trust from amazon.com.
